Attention Motorcycle Enthusiasts!

Since we now carry powerful electric motorcycles, we need to protect our customers. Kali Pro has raised the bar for motorcycle helmet safety while maintaining high performance designs. Each helmet’s shell is merged with low-density foam to avoid double impact. They also keep the weight of each helmet to a minimum to lessen the force of impact.

As shown in the graph, Kali Pro’s helmets result in low energy impacts, whereas traditional construction results in higher energy impacts and double impacts.

We have several different models in stock including the Naza Carbon, Tantra, and Rava.

Bikes for Fixie Fans

Seattle E-bike doesn’t just sell e-bikes! We also offer several different non-electric models, including two fixies from Cicli Blume. The America (pictured on left) is a pure fixie and the Fuxia (pictured on right) is a fixie flip flop. Both are hand made in Italy.

For those unfamiliar with fixies, a fixie (also known as a fixed-gear or fixed-wheel bicycle) is a bike with no gear system. Pedal forward and the bike goes forward. Pedal backward and the bike goes backward. 

There are typically no brakes. One way to stop a fixie is by resisting the pedals. Free wheel fixies allow for cyclists to coast with still pedals while the bike moves forward. The flip flop can be switched to be either a pure fixie or a free wheeling fixie.

With minimal parts, the fixies are the lightest bikes on the market. Fixies are popular with advanced cyclists due to their increased maneuverability, lightness, and efficiency.

Tips For Choosing a Biking Commute Route

1. Bike Lanes: Get to know where your city's bike lanes are for a safer ride. Places like Seattle offer Bike Maps to help you navigate. The SDOT's interactive map even offers different maps for different levels of comfort (Frequent Rider, Average Rider, and Occasional Rider).

2. Traffic Levels: If you already drive to work, you probably have a good sense of where the bad traffic is. Bikes can take different routes than cars to avoid bad traffic. In some cases, you may end up with longer commutes to avoid high traffic areas, but other times choosing low traffic or bike only routes can cut down on commute time. 

3. Terrain: Seattle is well known for its hilly terrain, so if you're planning to commute in the city or in another hilly area, get to know where the toughest hills are and whether they have safe spots for you to stop if necessary. Depending on the length of your commute, you may way to avoid steep hills towards the end of your trip if you are getting tired.

4. Hazards: Well maintained, paved roads are best for bike commuters. Poor road quality will not only make commuting difficult, but can also be harder on the bike itself. Know where rail road tracks, storm drains, etc are so you can plan to avoid or safely cross them. 

5. Lighting: Try to ride on roads that are well lit, so you can see where you're going and drivers can see you. Wear bright clothing to increase visibility. If you have to ride on dimly lit or unlit roads, it's a good idea to invest in lights for your bike. Light & Motion sells great head lights and rear lights for commuters that will make you visible to cars from all sides. This is especially important when weather is bad or when it starts getting dark earlier.

6. Test Ride: To reduce the pressure to arrive on time on your first attempt, do a test ride on a day you aren't working to get a sense of the route and timing. 

7. Electrify: Consider cutting your time by 50 to 70 percent by going Electric Assist.  If you pedal with the same effort you currently do, your speed will double on the flats, and increase 2 to 5 fold on hills, depending how steep they are. Depending on your riding level, E-Bikes can make a 7 mile Seattle commute in 20 minutes, which is comparable to a car. Some go 18 miles each way in under an hour.

The Cicli Blume Bikes Have Arrived!

Share this post Twitter Facebook Tumblr Email Posted July 18, 2014

OUR STUNNING ITALIAN BIKES ARE FINALLY HERE!

Some people think we are just an E-Bike store because our name is Seattle E-Bike. In fact, we carry a number of great human power only bikes.

None are as beautiful as these hand built Italian bikes, fixies, 3 speeds, and 7 speeds, from Cicli Blume in Verona Italy. Beauty is often expensive, but these are reasonably priced. 

But wait, there's more!!! Cicli also makes a lovely retro e-bike called the Lampociclo. The Lampociclo is a delightful blend of vintage design and electric power. Originally built with a 250 watt motor for the European market, the Lampociclo has been upgraded by Seattle E-bike to be more powerful for Northwest riding. We offer upgrades to either 500 or 750 watt center drive units. Center drives magnify motor performance considerably, so these bikes can take on the toughest hills Seattle has to offer in the most stylish fashion. 

We also upgrade the batteries to U.S assembled battery with 25% more capacity.

Seattle E-Bike's Extensive Folding Electric Bike Collection

We are thrilled to now offer three different folding bikes for our customers to choose from: E3 CompactEpik Lite, and Mariner 7All three of these bikes are double folding models, making transporting and storing easier than any other bike out there! 

So why must we carry so many folders?

Folding bikes are rising in popularity among commuters in Seattle and across the country. Many people have come into our shop and had their eyes set on a full size bike and then realize the convenience of our folders and can't take their eyes off of them! Not to mention, all of these bikes are fairly inexpensive, especially when compared to the non-folding models we carry. They usually come with a smaller motor, but a small motor goes quite a long way in overall torque and battery life on a 20" wheel compared to a larger motor and wheel.

Come in and try one out today! You will be leaving with a smile - we guarantee it!
